Fall Four Seasons Baltimore Wedding: Katie +Tony

Katie and Tony met in Hawaii on Match.com in 2014.  Tony messaged Katie but did not getting an immediate response. Katie, who created the profile in 2009 at the urging of friends and family, rarely checked it.  But shortly after Tony messaged her, Katie decided to make more of an effort. She updated her profile and started to return messages — including those sent from Tony.  The two hit it off. Match.com messages turned into emails, which turned into texts and eventually into talking on the phone.  Katie said she was “completely smitten” by Tony. Despite Katie recalling that the first date was filled with the standard awkward moments, the next day at work she was saying, “I’m in love, I’m in love, and I don’t care who knows it.”  She happily deleted her Match.com profile and has been in love ever since.   On New Year’s Eve 2015, Tony proposed in their home in front of their three dogs.

The wedding was imbued with Hawaiian touches, as the two live in Ewa Beach, on the Hawaiian island of Oahu.  Guests were greeted at cocktails with an Hawaiian trio, along with orchid leis flown in from Hawaii and a Hawaiian style buffet.   And, Katie had a surprise special hula dance for Tony that she learned for the wedding.  Malia Humschild from Lanikai, Hawaii, taught her the dance.   Congratulations!!!
